How can I bulk up with a fast metabolism?

I have a fast metabolism and I want to give myself enough fuel to put on muscle with weight training. What should I eat from a nutrition standpoint? There's too much diet fad noise out there...

I mention the fast metabolism because I don't know if it makes a difference what your metabolism is for muscle-building nutrition. What I understood was that you had to eat enough that you would get fat if you weren't doing weight training so instead you build muscle. Since I've never been successful at fattening up I can't see how I can expect to see much muscle gain (I have spent a good deal of time in the gym with not much results so I'm trying to improve my nutrition know-how).
